Spiritual Development


On-Campus Worship

As a college of and for the church, Bethany encourages all students to explore and deepen their own faith. Worship is central to our life as a community of faith, learning and service.

No classes or meetings are held at this time to allow the community to gather for prayer, praise, spiritual renewal and the sharing of the Word. Students, faculty and staff serve as speakers, worship leaders and musicians. Chapel includes contemporary and traditional styles of worship and music, Holy Communion, and lots of student involvement.

The Chapel Choir helps lead worship, assists the worshiping community in learning new liturgies and music, and sings in Chapel on a regular basis. Academic credit is awarded for faithful participation in the Chapel Choir.

Other worship services are scheduled throughout the year to celebrate special events on campus and Holy Days in the Church year. These services include Christmas Vespers, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday. Students are active in worship planning and leadership.
